Protecting nature, promoting commitment

We promote science and research

The Zwillenberg-Tietz Foundation supports studies of natural science research in the disciplines of agricultural sciences, biology (especially botany, ecology and zoology), forestry, geology, meteorology and related scientific fields. In this way we want to contribute to the preservation of native habitats with their diverse flora and fauna. A further focus of the projects supported is the study of changes in local soil, water, climate and air conditions in order not only to preserve the existing ecosystems, but possibly even to improve their quality.

To this end, we operate the Linde research station, which already forms the starting point for numerous research projects and activities. Over time, it is intended to develop into a meeting place for a wide range of disciplines who share a common interest in field research and who, from their respective perspectives, contribute to the achievement of the stated objectives by establishing long-term projects on the foundation’s own land and in the surrounding area.

We promote social commitment

In addition to promoting science, our second focus is on strengthening social commitment. In particular, we financially support a calendar which the State of Berlin publishes annually for Holocaust survivors or their descendants.
